Subject: You mean there is no phone, and nobody paid the electric bill?
Contrary to its setting, this isn't an old dark house mystery. Rather it's a secret panel, faces in the window, clutching hand, screaming women old dark house romp. Eleven minutes are missing from this print. Fortunately enough footage survives to make viewing worthwhile and fun. Mischa Auer goes nicely over the top as an insane caretaker, and so does Eddie Boland as a continuously tanked houseguest. There even is a nifty little sane scientist's lab. Don't worry about the plot. (The uploader's plot description is in error.) However one unfortunate aspect must be mentioned, and that is the racist portrayal of a black taxi driver played by George Reed. It was the '30s, and things like that were signs of the times.

The image quality is good enough, and so is the audio quality.

CAST NOTE: Between 1913 and 1947 George Reed made 128 film appearances, most of them uncredited. He is here at IA in "Judge Priest."
